This year, the only plants that seem to love all the sun and heat are the petunias. They get so drenched with sun for about half of the day that I have to water them twice. Just taking these photos made my camera so hot it was almost burning my hand.
This pot of petunias was grown from seed I saved. They seem to be hardier and slightly peach-ish vs the pink I thought it was the last time I saw it blooming which was last year.
